By Hope Horner

 

While online shopping has been around for a while now, it’s starting to become the preferred way to shop in America. The trend is based on the actions of the two largest age demographics: Sixty-seven percent of Millennials would rather browse and buy online, and 56 percent of Generation Xers agree.

 

The sea change toward online shopping isn’t the only notable internet trend of 2017. Video is everywhere you look online, and it’s being consumed at an incredibly high rate. In fact, Cisco predicts that video will make up about 80 percent of all internet traffic by 2019.

 

Businesses the world over are realizing (and capitalizing on) their customers’ preferences for video and its astounding marketing power. The e-commerce space, in particular, has much to gain by jumping on the video marketing bandwagon.

3 Video Marketing Tips to Turn Leads Into Clients

By Hope Horner


It’s no secret that video marketing is a powerful and compelling way for brands to tell their stories, raise awareness, and generate leads. However, the promotional capacity of video is just the tip of the iceberg; it’s also a highly effective way to convert those leads into sales. 

A recent Vidyard study revealed that more than 70 percent of businesses find improvements in their conversion rates when they utilize video marketing. This statistic shouldn’t be surprising, though. Compared to traditional text ads, video is a much more digestible medium for the human brain.

 

A 30-second clip can easily convey concepts that would otherwise require paragraph upon paragraph of words. To boot, video allows for this information to be presented in a much more entertaining fashion.

3 Ways to Ensure Your Video Campaign Is a Home Run

By Hope Horner

 

Even the most successful companies can find themselves stuck on a plateau — not necessarily losing ground, but certainly not gaining any. They often respond reflexively with their marketing strategies, maybe buying more ad space or sending more emails to subscribers. We’ve all been there, wondering how to turn leads into sales and get performance metrics back on track.

 

While every company’s situation is unique, an investment in video production is proven to attract new clients, engage current clients on a deeper level, and broaden overall marketing reach.

 

Sure, good video isn’t cheap, but the power of video marketing is indisputable. Internet traffic in 2017 is expected to be 74 percent video, and it’s not hard to see why: Video is more eye-catching than text and easier for the brain to digest quickly. In fact, merely including the word “video” in email subject lines can boost the effectiveness of a campaign, with 19 percent higher open rates and 65 percent higher click-through rates. Consumers want more high-quality video, and the companies that can deliver it will win.

Short + Simple = Effective: Best Practices for Tech Video Ads

By Hope Horner

 

Videos are getting shorter and shorter, and that shouldn’t come as a surprise. If you’re like me, 10-second Snapchat videos of a friend’s pet, significant other, or dinner plate sometimes feel a tad long. If you look at television ads, most of them are in the 15-second range. While only half the length of a 30-second ad that costs twice as much to produce, those shorter spots are 75 percent as effective as longer commercials.

 

Despite the additional cost, those extra seconds can often be remarkably useful, allowing you to tell a more captivating story that goes into greater depth. Plus, 30-second videos are generally still short enough to keep the attention of most viewers — as long as they’re compelling.

3 ways to elevate your video marketing strategy

By Hope Horner

 

“Did you see that video everyone is talking about?” You probably hear this at least once a week. People these days are just as crazy about online video as they were about moving pictures in the days of the silent silver screen, and streaming video is only getting more popular. You still have time to get ahead of the curve — and your competitors — but you need a game plan.


If you aren’t sure whether online video content is a priority for your marketing needs, you should know that 64 percent of consumers are more likely to pull the trigger on a purchase after watching a video about the product. Video is already a vital piece of any digital marketing campaign, and yet many businesses focus on the wrong elements because they don’t have a video marketing strategy in place. In fact, according to Buffer, while 83 percent of marketers want to create more video, many aren’t sure how to film and edit a video or what to put in it.

How to Effectively Match Your Video Content to the Buyer’s Journey

By Hope Horner

 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then video must be pushing a million. Unlike still images, video marketing has the power to not only showcase your brand’s personality and tell an authentic story, but also to call your most important viewers to action.

 

Over 70 percent of businesses report seeing better conversion rates when using video over plain text in their marketing initiatives, and about three-quarters of B2B marketers corroborate that claim, according to a Demand Metric survey.

 

However, video isn’t only effective in closing sales — it can also be used to usher down the funnel those who aren’t quite ready to purchase. By carefully considering what your video content is about and how it’s positioned, you can turn new leads into lifelong customers.
